Trippy Celtic Pictures I Drew Over The Years

Eight pointed star made using only one line that overlaps and connects to itself. The star was red, but the paper it was drawn on got water damage, bleeding the color

An outline of a four leaf clover woven around the outline of a Canadian maple leaf

Complicated spiral of interweaving lines inside a circle with a black background

Head and shoulder portrait style drawing of an anthropomorphic sloth wearing a military uniform and helmet. Above the portrait it says, "SLOTH SQUAD OF DOOM."

A trippy and creepy self-portrait of myself with hard angles and dark shading. To the left of him are the words, "Bounce your ideas off as many walls as possible."

An Iron Cross made from the negative space between two concentric circles and a ring of eight smaller circles and four chevrons

Complicated drawing of a lot of trippy, squiggly lines, an Om inside the outline of a gear and a drawing of Heather Kozar naked, with swirling lines covering her sex organs

The same picture of Heather Kozar as above, but taken from a farther distance to show more of the squiggly lines, but at the expense of showing detail

Crisp pencil drawing of a man raising a fist, made from random black shapes. This is done on the margin of a piece of notebook paper, and definitions of words can be seen to the right of the red margin line

The outline of a gear with a circle and star inside it, woven together

Notbook paper covered in a collage of various images (mostly faces, animals and common objects) that fit together like abstract puzzle pieces

Watercolor picture of a treble cleff with a dolphin jumping through it

Trippy picture of half a man's face, surrounded by creepy, crawling black lines that turn into a demonic bird head

Picture of a black dog paw print that has been modified to create a skull in the negative space between the black

A six-pointed star woven through a circle

Drawing of multiple human and animal faces that fit together like puzzle pieces

A circle surrounded by a ring of circles. In between them are three more circles made by shading the negative space

Geometric and Mandala-esque Celtic Knotwork Sketches I Drew During School

All but one of these are Celtic knots I drew in my notebook during college classes over the course of the 2015 school year. At the end of the year, I gave the best ones to my teachers and the rest to my classmates. I hope they kept them. They’re going to be worth a lot someday.

I used Prisma Colors to make the Mandala Sunflower design at the bottom of the page, which was a birthday present to my supportive and patient girlfriend.


Two concentric circles with over/under-lapping arches of ribbons woven between them and each other
Two concentric squares with two more, rotated at a 90 degree angle and interlaced between them The same concentric square Celtic knot design as above, but with shading under the places where lines overlap Four concentric circles, with arches of ribbons woven between them in a Mandala patternThe same four concentric circles, with arches of ribbons woven between them in a Mandala pattern, but with the background colored in black Complicated Celtic knotwork Mandala with overlapping circles, arches and stars Two concentric "8's" framed by Celtic-style loops and angled linesTwo concentric diamond shapes connected by traditional Celtic knots, with a black background and white circle in the middle A four-pointed star made of 6 overlapping diamond-shaped polygons One line that loops in and out of itself. It looks like a donut-shaped bowl of soup. The background is not shaded in the bottom left quarter of the donut, and the overlapping lines there have not been erased to look overlapping IMG_1561 A large, serrated triangle made from one line that spirals into a concentric series of polygons, making a smaller triangle in the center from the negative space between the lines

A star made from angled loops that connect to/framed by a wide, square band of traditional Celtic knots containing alternating Trinity symbols and hearts

Very simple outline of a human skull with eye sockets, a nose socket and teethThe same basic skull outline as above, but with the lines turned into ribbons and the outline of a bird added; the skull's nose socket makes the tail feathers; the wings wrap over the top of the eyebrows, and the head of the bird is at the top center of the skull's forehead


The same skull as above, but with the background behind the eyes, bird and the peripheral of the skull shaded-in A four-pointed star made from four diamond shaped ribbons woven together and embellished with spiral designs in the negatives spaces. Laying on top of the paper is a real cigarette lighter with a picture of a glowing gofer on it.

Four circles in a clover pattern, with six concentric circles inside the clover


The same Celtic clover of circles with concentric circles inside it. The background has been shaded to look like a bullseye. A basic Mandala circle, but where the lines meet at the edge of the circle, they extend outward to make the shapes of sunflower leaves.
